Our Feedback
Thank you all very much for the two trees that arrived yesterday. As you may remember they were for my wife's birthday and she was absolutely delighted. We have followed the instructions and they are now looking very nice in our small but crammed garden. They were well packed and even as she unwrapped them she had no idea what they were, a perfect surprise. So impressed was she with the service, I think other orders may follow.

Qty:

Closely related to the Blueberry, Bilberries are slated to be the next 'new' super fruit as they contain greater concentrations of antioxidants and phytochemicals; but Bilberries are nothing new and in some parts of the UK have naturalised into hedgerows and scrubland where they go under a multitude of names including Whortleberries, Whinberries, Blaeberries and, in France, Myrtilles.

Growing up to around 18" (45 cm) in height, the Bilberry produces delicate white bell flowers that form into the familiar purple coloured berries in the Autumn.

The berries can be used fresh or dried and make the most wonderful pies, puddings and jam - which was a favourite with RAF bomber crew as they thought it improved their night vision.

  • Harvest August / September.
  • Suitable for both open ground planting or container growing.
  • For open ground planting plant 12" x 12" (30 x 30 cm) apart.
  • Ericaceous, so will require soil or compost of an acidic nature.
  • Self Fertile.
  • Slow growing.
